I think this will probably appeal more to the average viewer with little to no knowledge of BMW and it's cultural intricacies.

I hope they prove me wrong.

Believe me, I am really looking forward to it, and will have my microwaved-popcorn all fired up and ready to go for this!
You might be right, but I don't understand why people always have to bring the mood down. A segment on TV dedicated to BMW is amazing.

I know, it does come across as a downer post now that I read it. Not my intention.

36 hour countdown begins ...

My power has been out for 32 hours, and it isn't predicted to be back until Thursday. That is just perfect - so much for my DVR setting.

Glad to see the rebroadcast over the weekend!

I was thinking that was just cool to have a segment on BMW.

I think in retrospect this is a marketing piece. Recall that BMW is now targeting us as their prime car market. Their answer to Detroit muscle is that the X3 is built in the U.S. if you recall those commercials and I'd expect the segment to touch on that.

I found out about this the day I started the process to buy my new (to me) 05 M3 - a car I've been obsessed with for since the e46 M came out.

DVR is set. Looks like a good one.

The BMW part of the documentary should be fun but I'm a bit more excited to watch the segment on Rolls Royce. We all know it's the best, the elite when it comes to the ultimate luxury car but it doesn't get that much attention (for obvious reasons) so it should be interesting to see how much they show us about the Rolls Royce brand.

That's what I did/doing. Called all my cousins (their families drive Mercedes, one converted from owning BMW's). "How good is BMW? They're getting their own documentary, where is Mercedes?" LOL
